a deal with the college democrats but those of us thought are not involved in the politics and education or finance or any other topic and a lot of people but are not in the politics don't know what to do and they believe they see the problems in front of us and they understand and comprehend how serious they are and they want to do something that they either do not know how to or they are intimidated. but from my experience they are ready to believe again and they can hope again and as our national leader continuance buyer and hope my generation the people that are older than me so once again stand out and fight for what they believe. >> it's how you teach an old dog new tricks. >> most of us are in our environment how we were raised, and we learn from them. i have said there's five promises every adult should make. the first is a child should have a loving and caring adults in their life and the second is they should have a healthy start to read the child should have an education. the child should have a safe place. the second one is a promise you cannot teach. they should grow to be l
for failed education systems, failed school systems to get their acts together. throughout the country there are some promising signs that we can bring schools and parents together to improve our educational system. san francisco public schools adopted a funding mechanism according to what's termed a weighted student formula. under this policy the more students a school attracts, the more money that school, its administrators and teachers receive. low-income students are weighted heavier and the funding forum as our children with disabilities, and those learning english as a second language. so there's incentives are schools to seek the more vulnerable population, and reasons for schools to differentiate themselves and to excel. imagine if we were to try and move in this direction with federal funding. allow the money we truly spend to actually follow individual children. students, including those without a lot of money for those with special needs, we be able to access a school which would give them a shot at having a successful life, a shot at earning their success and achieving thei

child is getting a great education, the doctor, it is very encouraging to me that you turned out so well by your mom not letting you watch tv. i'm going to tell my daughters that. [laughter] in the midst of all these debates, we must keep that same humility that dr. king and lincoln them washington and all our great leaders understood is at the core of true leadership. in a democracy is as big and as diverse as ours, we will encounter every opinion. and our task as citizens, whether we are leaders in government or business, or spreading the word, to spend our days with open hearts and open minds, to seek out the truth that exists in an opposing view, and to find the common ground that allows for us as a nation, as a people, to take real and meaningful action. and we have to do that humbly, for no one can know the full and encompassing mind of god. and we have to do it everyday, not just at the prayer breakfast. i have to say, this is now our fifth prayer breakfast, and it is always just a wonderful event. but i do worry sometimes that as soon as we leave the prayer breakfast, everything
